Curcumin Considered a Safer Alternative to NSAIDs


Portland, OR -- (SBWIRE) -- 08/29/2014 -- According to the American Pain Foundation, there are over 50 million individuals who suffer from chronic pain in the United States. This increase in the number of pain sufferers also causes pharmaceutical drug usage to sky-rocket, especially those such as non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs).

These drugs work by stopping the inflammation to address the pain. However, there is a drawback associated in using pain relief drugs. According to recent studies, the use of NSAIDs can increase a person’s chance in suffering from kidney and liver damage, as well as an increased risk of heart attacks.

“ Medicines should heal rather than harm patients. It is important that arthritis sufferers do not only focus on the therapeutic benefits of a particular treatment option, but also on the adverse effects that it may potentially cause,” says Michelle O'Sullivan, spokesperson at VitaBreeze Supplements.

Due to the disappointing effects of drugs, more and more studies have been conducted to find other potential remedies for pain, especially for arthritis sufferers. It was found that curcumin supplements could be a safer alternative to NSAIDs. Not only do they have the potential to provide pain relief, but they also do not increase a person’s risk to diseases and life-threatening conditions in the same way drugs do.

Clinical studies showed that curcumin, which is the active ingredient found in an ancient spice called turmeric, has powerful anti-inflammatory agents. These anti-inflammatory agents can significantly help the body to relieve pain and is very safe to use. Moreover, studies showed that the anti-inflammatory effects of curcumin could be more powerful than most drugs.

According to experts, one of the most fascinating things about using curcumin is that it does not only focus on providing pain relief, but also offers other health benefits such as increased immune function and cardiovascular protection. It would seem that, rather than causing side effects, the supplement instead offers other benefits that are good for overall health.

“Curcumin supplements, unlike drugs, do not have other ingredients or chemicals that can jeopardize the health of patients. Although curcumin is generally considered safer, it is always recommended that people consult with their physician before taking a new supplement,” warns O'Sullivan.

The Turmeric Curcumin supplement from Vitabreeze is considered one of the safest and most effective natural alternatives today. It contains the patented Curcumin C3 Complex from the Sabinsa Corporation, which was recently awarded GRAS status (Generally Recognized as Safe) by the FDA -
